Elliot’s Top Surgery Fund

Growing up I thought hating my body was completely normal, not being comfortable in my own skin must have been something everyone experienced. After turning 18 and going off to college I found out that my body image issues were indeed not a normal thing, no one should hate the way they look. No one should not want to look in the mirror or hate every photo they look at of themselves, and at first, I couldn’t figure out why. Being in college allowed me to open up and find friends that understood what I was going through. I found a family that helped me find my way and slowly learn to love myself. In 2019 I came out as FTM transgender. For those who don’t know what that means, to put it mildly, in my heart and soul I am a man but the body I was born into was all female. The realization of why I struggled with my body, the years of depression, no confidence, or self-love was a freeing one but it also brought on so much more. Realizing that there was a way for me to me feel more like myself and make the body I was given match who I am inside made me yearn for it to all happen. I was extremely lucky to be able to start taking testosterone in 2019. It allowed for changes that made me start to gain confidence and actually start loving who I am. But one thing has bugged me, even before I knew I was trans my chest was a big spot of hate for me, once I came out as trans I figured out why but it isn’t an easy fix. It could be but financially it most definitely isn’t. Waking up every day and looking in the mirror at a chest that causes me severe dysphoria is extremely painful. All I want to do is be able to look in the mirror and feel confident, to be able to be in photos without hating every part of me, I want to be able to be confident, and feel comfortable with who I am, this gender-affirming surgery will allow all of this to happen. I can’t do it alone, the cost of surgery is high and I cannot financially cover it myself. Currently, I have 3,000 of the needed 15,000 for surgery, hospital fees tests Ect. From one friend to another I am asking for your support and help, every dollar counts and means the world to me! In order to even schedule surgery, there is a deposit, which currently I’m 1500 short of ( it is included in the overall surgery amount but needs to be paid before scheduling ) Thank you ! Elliot ❤️
